Baked Halloween cookies

I wanted to try out some new cookie shapes for Halloween so I sat down yet again and made some new Halloween templates: Ghost, bat, pumpkin, coffin and a rat. They were a little bit difficult to cut out by hand, so thats why I have only made two of each shape.

I have also tried to make some “Witch fingers” out of the cookie dough. But the first batch ended up looking more like swollen fingers and not long, thin and “creepy”. So I had to make some adjustments with the new cookie dough and hopefully will the new “Witch fingers” turn out a lot better than the first ones (I will let you know)

Btw if there are anyone who have experience with colored cookie dough. I would be happy to know if I should use: powder or gel colors in my cookie dough?

Now I will go back into the kitchen and make some royal icing for the cookies so I can start on the fun part, decorating!

Happy Caking!

    Hi Louise,
    I too was quite amazed at the crisp edges of your cookies. As someone already posted my cookies always spread, and I do hope you’ll share the recipe or technique you used to achieve this impeccable look on your cookies.
    Kudos!

    Hi Louise, these cookies look fab! I was wondering if you could create a tutorial for decorating cookies with poured fondant? I’ve tried royal icing put I love the ‘shiny’ finish on the liquid fondant.

    These look so cute, I hope we can see them decorated very soon. I use gel color for the dough whenever I make colored cookies, I make candy canes with red and normal dough and everyone loves them!(a little time consuming!) You just have to be careful with the oven.
